Philadelphia Film Society - Screening of The Wrester at Asylum Arena

user
PFS filmadelphiaCLASSICS series on location, continued last week with a screening of the 2009 Oscar nominated film, The Wrestler. The Film was shown at Asylum Arena (South Philly) because the wrestling scenes in the movie were actually shot there! I knew director, Darren Aronofsky had Philly connections with his film Black Swan, as the PA Ballet is all over that film, but this was news to me that Mickey Rourke had been here filming in 2008. Prior to the screen...

American Indie Auteurs In Poland

user
  While the Polish public certainly is aware of the latest Hollywood films, and with current American television series also freely available here, it is a little surprising that some  of the American indie world's most celebrated auteurs are virtually unknown. That is one of the goals of the inaugural American Film Festival, the first film event in Eastern Europe solely devoted to contemporary and classic American cinema. And if the size of the audiences at the screenings is any indica...

  Natalie Portman in BLACK SWAN  While film professionals are here at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) to buy and sell films in a still soft market, for the Toronto public the big attraction are the movie stars who will be walking the red carpet in the coming 10 days. Toronto is a bit star-crazy, with all the local television stations highlighting their TIFF coverage and promising viewers up-close-and-personal access with the movie stars who are huddling here. Ever...

Hollywood Sex Symbol in Sarajevo

user
Mickey Rourke in between the process of undergoing the knife almost too unrecognizable familiar face of Hollywood sex symbol of 80s had no means to conceal the damage caused to his face, but only to rise above all in rather flirty matter, with addressing the Sarajevo Press Audience. Something that you can check out on official festival site www.sff.ba Born in New York in 1952, Rourke's teenage years were more aimed towards sports than acting. He took up self-defense training at the Bo...

A ROCKY For Our Troubled Times

user
  Sunday, October 12-----Every generation deserves its own Rocky.....a reminder that guts can lead to glory. In 1976, Sylvester Stallone's sentimental tale of a past-his-prime boxer who finds love and redemption both in and out of the ring, was an unlikely hit and major Oscar winner. In the next 30 years, films about bucking the odds have become their own uniquely American genre.   This year's Rocky is also the comeback story of the year....both for its lead actor an...

A Festival of Discoveries

  Sunday, September 14-------For the first time in the past few years, the Toronto International Film Festival will be best remembered for its discoveries, rather than the bigger-budget entries that graced the Galas. Many of those films were critical and industry disappointments (including The Burning Plain, The Third Man, Miracle of St. Anna, The Brothers Bloom, Pride And Glory, The Duchess and several others). Of course, they delivered the necessary stardust that has now become de rigeu...

Little Oscar Buzz At Toronto This Year

 Friday, September 12--------This year, Oscar didn't come to Toronto. Since the Academy Awards calendar was shortened in 2003, Toronto loomed large as the place to premiere Oscar contenders for the end-of-year awards season.In the past few years, films such as Atonement, No Country For Old Men and Last King of Scotland began their Oscar trajectories in Toronto.  Many of the Galas here, which have contained some past awards successes, have been poorly received (including The Burning Plain, T...
